Perhaps best known for their viral “Epic Mashleg“, which artfully debunked the repetitive, and commercial nature of tracks in the Beatport Top 100 chart, genre-defying Swedish duo, Daleri have taken the dance music scene by storm in recent months, and has come to procure a dedicated fan base.
With several noteworthy releases on the Tasty Network, the duo consistently delivers their distinctive style, and demonstrates their proficiency in the studio with each consecutive track. Not surprisingly, Daleri has caught the attention of Mat Zo, as well as that of electronic music prodigy, Madeon, with their electrifying tune, “Bonjour“.
To the delight of dance music listeners, Daleri has just dropped a fresh and funky new tune entitled “With You”, which is currently available to stream before its official release on prominent label, Circus Records, on February 23rd. A grooving coalescence of bright synths and stabs, “With You” is nothing short of what one would expect from this dexterous duo.
Additionally, Daleri took the time to answer a few interview questions about their own inspirations and influences, as well as offered some insightful advice for aspiring artists. “With You” can be streamed above, and pre-ordered here via iTunes.
1. How did you first become involved in electronic music? What prompted you to start producing together in the first place?
Eric: Oh, it’s kind of hard to remember to be honest. I always had a big interest in music tho; I remember I listened a lot to electronic music on my freestyle, and played Kai Traced – trance & acid over and over again, which might have been a little been strange since i was 12 years old, Bomfunk Mc were also a big favorite. Robert and me met in college, we used to meet after school and weekends to make music and have fun together.
Rob: I think I’ve always been interested in the creating of music since very young age. I went to piano school and learned the basics but I felt I wanted to do more than just play the piano. At the time I wasn’t in a band and had no friends who could play an instrument so I bought a synthesizer and began messing around with it. That’s when it stared I guess. The moment I could compose whole musical part and put them together I was stuck.
2. Which artists (electronic or non-electronic) would you say have influenced your music in any way?
There are always artists that influence what you are doing and it changes from time to time as you grow as a person and producer. For Daleri it’s of course a lot of electro house producers like Tommy trash, Mord Fustang, Daft Punk, Madeon, list goes on!
Eric; I’ve been listening to a lot of different genres and music since I was a kid. I tried rock music because my friends listened to it, but it never felt like me even though I liked some tracks. I also tried pop music, and I felt the same about it. But then I found this genre called electronic music, and I fell in love instantly, it wasn’t that big at the time and I remember I always had to defend my taste in music. I’m sure it has affected me, and I can still enjoy these old songs!
Rob: I wasn’t locked to any specific genre. It could be anything from a relaxing to a harder style of music as long I found it musically satisfying.
4. When producing, how do you aim to make your music stand out from the plethora of other tunes released on the daily within the genre?
I think first of all it’s important that you enjoy producing a specific genre. In that way it’s easier to get more creative. But the most important is always to have a personal touch in the music you produce to be unique. I think we managed to implement that in all our productions.
We just do what we do; it doesn’t really work when you think too much. Just do what you like and enjoy making. That’s the key!
5. You’ve become and increasingly prominent in the electronic music scene, with many successful releases on the Tasty Network and now Circus Records. Do you have any advice for aspiring producers?
Always aim to improve yourself. Enjoy what you are doing. Don’t be afraid of failures. Learn from your mistakes. Don’t be someone else. Be yourself. Be unique.
